  1. Revelation 21:9-11 This is the mansion in heaven which Jesus Christ promised to them in John 14:1-4. A temporary place for them and will be coming down to be with Jesus Christ on his kingdom here on earth. Temporarily they’re staying there.

  2. Yes brother David, what you say makes a lot of sense. As per the centurion's remarks it was clear that these events created a furero in Jewish land, at least. However, I wonder what was up with the Jewish people of the day. After three and half years of his earthly ministry peppered with many miracles and signs and of course with these shocking events while he was dying on the cross, it was only 120 people ( perhaps not counting a few more women) who gathered at the time of Pentecost.

  3. It's such a blessing that you tackle all these controversial topics. I would love an even more in depth study on this if ever you feel so inclined. Either way I love all your teachings! Thank you!

  4. Amen, brother. You and I are part of a small minority who believe OT Saints remained in Abraham’s bosom after The Resurrection of Christ. Most presuppose Jesus “led captivity captive” to mean they all went to heaven with Him.
    You are such a blessing to the body of Christ. Grace & peace!

  5. Was not the old testament believers raised with Jesus and showed themselves before being taken to heaven ? Was not that department in the netherworld called paradise emptied then? And then a new age began under the age of grace, and those believers that die there goes to be with the Lord in heaven ? 2 Corinthians 5:8

  6. So I agree with you because of the same scriptures as well. I brought this up before and people will always bring up this passage:

    Mat 27:51  And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
    Mat 27:52  And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
    Mat 27:53  And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

    So I guess even this is still yet future, and was just a vision as well. Because you can’t get around what it says in Acts 2:34 about David is still with them and has not yet ascended to heaven. He would’ve definitely had gone up to heaven in Matthew 27 if Matthew 27 was not yet still future 😊❤️

  7. Thank you great teaching and an over looked truth you revealed as a difference between OT Israel and the one new man the body of Christ. Christianity over looks the fulfillment of Ezekiel 37.

  8. I have a question, if israel inherits the earth for eternity and the body of Christ inherits heaven for eternity then how are both made ONE in the dispensation of the fullness of times????

  9. David, could it be that David’s body wasn’t ascended? Joseph wanted his physical body taken out of Egypt because he knew about the physical resurrection. Maybe you’ve dealt with this verse before but when Paul died, he says he went up to paradise.
